Snow Cone Goblin
Snow Cone Goblin...Why? Because I was thinking of snow cones when I created this creature. Well, I lie. I did not spend 83 hours thinking of snow cones. It was more like 83 seconds, but who's counting? I had a custom order placed through my Etsy Store in the begining of September and I am finally finished. The Customer wanted something a lot like Twinkle Toe Goblin. Although she had her own ideas too. She really loved the colors but added that she loves hot pink and Orange. I ended up being out of the Awesome stash of Berry Bamboo I had so I went shopping on Etsy. The 8oz I bought special for this custom order were not like the pictures the Etsy seller posted. Oh No! And I had already waited almost two weeks. So this Goblin took on a whole new look. I had to brighten his face and added more highlights to make up for the pastel bamboo I used for his mane. I think he turned out great. But I still like Twinkle Toes more.
This Goblin is every color of the rainbow. I'm getting more skilled with Color Bleeding with each new goblin. I still hate felting over wire though.
Well Just sent the pictures to the customer. I am keeping my fingers crossed that she likes him. If not well, he was fun to make anyway!
